I do not worry

I do not worry about what I will eat
I do not worry about where I will sleep
For the whole world is His
And everything in it.

I do not worry about what will come
For history and the future belongs to Him.
I fear no one except for Him 
I love no one more than Him. 

Jesus is the King of Glory
The indisputable ruler of the world.

Forgive me, Lord

Forgive me, Lord
My sins are deep
Have I taken repentance seriously
Or your forgiveness cheaply?
What is my life
Where do I stand
Am I walking towards life
Or running to my death?
I stand and sit lonely
Not depressed nor am I anxious
Is it apathy or a lack of sense
Is it disappointment or discouragement?
Have I forgotten how to feel?
One thing I know
Is that I can still love
Still preach, still teach and pray.

My sins from thee I foolishly hide

My sins from thee I foolishly hide
Eschewing the saints, I dwell alone
And ride the waves of sadness
When happiness beckons me,
I turn away. Defeat my flesh
Then the battle shall be won
But it is won, only cling to Christ my hope.


Summer comes when the sun smiles

Summer comes when the sun smiles
Nature rises to her Eden designs.
But my love is imprisoned to my chest
Chained, unable to lay on paradise rug.
I go on and march on with the quest of life
I feel defeated but hope is the gentle wind 
That carries me along, 
And one day, on a summer's day
When the sun smiles
I too will laugh and rest on Eden's grass.

God sent his very best to save us

God sent his very best to save us. He did not just send a general or an angel or the most wonderful thing he created but sent his very best, that is him who could have done no better than himself. It was as if he himself came to do that job. God did not just send any son but His only Son and that Son was the exact representation of himself, to come and save us. God gave us his very best and how much more ought we without little effort or sacrifice give him our all and more. It should be no effort at all. It should be a sweet thing to us to say, God, here is all I am and all I am worth, it is yours and I am entirely at your service and I am your eternal slave. The blessings we receive from what God gives us cannot compare to any service that we render him. He did not need us but we need him. The dependance is all from us and the grace and power are all from Him. He sent his only Son and how infinitely that Son loved and loves us for he too is God. The eternal trinity loved and loves us. O may we love the Father, Son and Holy Spirit with all of our hearts and soul.


Have I reflected the image of God

Have I reflected and displayed the image of God as God intended, and communicated it to others in ways that would bring glory to God in front of men and the ever-watching eyes of the angels? Have I been meek? Have I been pure in heart? Have I rejoiced when persecuted for the sake of Christ? Have I been poor in Spirit? Have I been gentle and kind bearing with my brothers and loving my enemies? Have I brought all to Jesus in prayer? Have I meditated upon his word and counted everything as a loss? O I have failed! I have miserably failed! Have I neglected the fellowship of the saints? Have I pursued love in all things? Have I sought the weak and the poor to comfort them in their miseries? Have I visited the orphans and the widows? Have I written to those who are in prison for the sake of Christ and visited them with bread and water? Have I done all I can to subdue my body so as to not walk in the flesh? Have I bent my knee before Christ? I have no hope save in the atoning work of Christ. He is my only hope to enter heaven and to be in sweet fellowship with the Father.

The eternal garden - Part 1

There was a way by the Enoch road
Which led to an eternal garden.
No one has yet entered
For the way was tough
The bravest soldier
It's been told died just ten miles in.
One day, when the day was almost forgotten
Came a boy, almost fifteen
Dressed in an unknown garb
He looked princely
He was definitely the Son of a King
Came to us all, with a book and no more.
Fear, not villagers, do not fear my light he said.
We all in silent stood until a soul asked in dread,
What is the eternal garden like
Does it really exist,
Have we in vain sought the rest of eternal life?
The regal boy for a minute answered not
Then turned his back
And like a general implored us all declaring
Come, poor souls, a battle must be fought
For great darkness in ten days must be gone
Or your whole city will be forever embalmed
And you all to hades will descend.
We are ruined the oldest man cried
My great grandfather, he is almost ready to die,
Woe is us, double woe to our kids
Kind Prince is there not a saviour for us to reach?
